Folk Art Festivities

For the past few months, Jantje has been working on organizing a folk art exhibit at Kingsbrae Garden. In addition to works from seven artists from around the Maritimes (including Jantje), this exhibit  includes a selection of early Canadiana pulled together by folk artist and collector Brian Allen Adams.

Last night, the exhibit opening took place and it was a hit! Several pieces sold and people were charmed by the fun and friendly works of art.

Here are some photos of the reception...

Also, for the reception only, visitors to the Kingsbrae Art Gallery were treated to some original historic pieces of folk art from Maud Lewis, Joe Norris and Joe Sleep.

It was such a fun evening. The show continues through October 8th, 2011 and admission to the gallery is free.
